Jamaica recovering steadily from COVID-19 impact - Holness

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says Jamaica is recovering steadily from the economic fallout sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic, based on the out-turns of several key indicators.
 
The country recorded growth of 14.2 per cent and 5.8 per cent in the April to June and July to September 2021 quarters, respectively, following an 18.4 per cent economic contraction in the April to June 2020 period.
 
Mr. Holness was delivering the keynote address at Tuesday's opening ceremony for the Jamaica Stock Exchange 17th semi-virtual Regional Investments and Capital Markets Conference, being held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston.
